There's a wheel of fortune at Animal Haven
(9800 West 67th Street in Merriam), and the fortunes at stake are more than monetary. The metro's largest no-kill animal shelter is bursting at the seams, with 350 homeless pets at its facility and about 125 more in foster care. "We're full enough right now that we've put extra kennels in our intake facility. There's just not enough room to put them in the adoption facility," says Marketing Coordinator Eric Hacker. The wheel of fortune is all about boosting adoptions. Spin it for a discount on the cat or dog of your choice. Spinnable cat prices range from free to $75, with second cats going for half-price. Dogs over 40 pounds range from free to $75; dogs that weigh less than 40 pounds go for $90 to $115. Make it some animal's lucky day by spinning the wheel any day in July. The shelter is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Call 913-432-7548 or see animalhavenkc.org
